Woman handbag Isabella: a high quality product handmade in the Florentine style. Discover the collection of leather bags Woman of FP Pelletterie.
This comfortable Florence leather handmade handbag is crafted following the ancient techniques of the old leather craftsmen from Italy. The use of the cowhide leather guarantees an excellent resistance to the signs of time. In fact, this material is also used for luggage and shoe soles. This italian leather handbag made in Florence is very spacious and it opens centrally through a zipper, which gives access to two open interior compartments, two zipped pockets (one central and one on the side) and two additional multipurpose pockets. Inside you can carry books, notebooks, magazines with A4 format, tablets and laptop up to 14.3''. The two side handles give the maximum resistance even when you have to carry a weight object like a laptop. The interior is completely lined with classic monochrome fabric. The bag can also be carried on the shoulder thanks to the comfortable 110cm strap which is included with the bag. The name of the bag comes from Isabella de’ Medici, the favourite daughter of Cosimo I.

This kind of leather is called Tuscan cowhide leather and it is obtained using a vegetable-tanned process done by hand. Its main features is that it allows the material to change color over time, as in a continuous reworking of its look, and it also makes the leather softer year after year depending on the use that everyone makes of it. Thanks to this, each one has its unique bags in the world. A few centuries ago in Florence this leather was used to make the shoes of shepherds and military. No animal is slaughtered to make these products, since the leather comes from the food industry.

Painting process:
The production of this bag includes the vegetable tanning, which transforms an already great cowhide, into a real Florentine genuine leather. The procedure mainly uses natural materials such as tannin extracted from mimosa and chestnut, respecting the ancient tradition of Florentine leather craftsmen. The most important thing about this process is its result, which allows the leather to change color shades depending on the time of exposure to sunlight. Today Tuscany is the first producer in Italy of vegetable-tanned leather.

Sign of times:
The signs of time are certainly not a problem for the cowhide leather, which guarantees resistance to water and also let you try to remove the surface scratches that could appear year after year. This is possible only thanks to the handmade vegetable tanning, which penetrates the color thoroughly, leaving it not only on the surface as usually happens in the industrial products. Day after day this bag shows its life, not only becoming vintage, but becomes more and more beautiful and imperfect.
